I'm having trouble with Browsers. I rotate between Safari, Aurora, and Chrome. i'm mixed between Aurora
and Chrome for which I prefer. But all three of them eventually choke of resources and hog the cpu. Sometimes
quitting the broswer helps but most of the time, I reboot of OS X is needed to clean up the resource logjam.
My practice of using a lot of windows and tabs is at least part of it. But if varys on different days.
Thist week began a new bothersome and worrisome behavior that has malware fingerprints. Sometimes when I click
on a link on a window that is "normal" size (say 60% height and 60% width of screen), a full screen pops up over everything
and something I didn't ask for shows up. There are several cases of what shows up.
1. Some times it is a window that advises me to clean up my Mac offering a tool to do that (I've seen this offer all the time
but I cannot recall which one it is but it is very common--I think the thing that was offered was Mac Keeper about which I have heard bad things so I
avoid it. It appears to have a foot hold on my system). clock the red close button on the window (or Cmd-W) and it disappears
and the window it came from reappears and is functional. I can no click the same link I had used before and now it works. Sometimes,
but not always, later windows as I navigate do the same thing.
2. Today, when I went to www.apple.com/support and clicked on discussions, a full scren window popped up with the URL:
or some other thing - I've only captured the two URLs.
If I close that popped up window, I"m bad on the apple discussion web page and things work OK.
This feels like my system is infested with something. Anyone have any ideas how thiat can be cleaned up?
